Sigma Chi

In December 2012, Sigma Chi designated the Huntsman Cancer Foundation as its sole preferred philanthropic partner. On April 12, 2013, Sigma Chi members presented the one-millionth dollar raised for cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute to Significant Sig and Order of Constantine Sig Jon M. Huntsman, Sr., PENNSYLVANIA 1959. On June 15, 2015, Sigma Chi made the largest commitment by a men’s fraternity with a 10 million dollar pledge to Huntsman Cancer Foundation. To date, Sigma Chi has raised over 5 million dollars towards this pledge and the 6th floor of the Huntsman Cancer Hospital has been named the Sigma Chi International Fraternity 6th Floor to honor their commitment.

The Derby Challenge


The Derby Challenge is an online competition between the chapters of Sigma Chi. Chapter winners are announced each year at Balfour Leadership Training Workshop. The Challenge runs annually from August 1 to July 31.

Philanthropy has always been an integral part of Sigma Chi, with the undergraduates taking up the rallying cry of becoming “The Generation to End Cancer”. This partnership with Sigma Chi is significant because college students across the world are directly affecting the lives of others through their fundraising efforts each year. These young men are facilitating workshops, events, and campaigns that reach outside of the Mountain West region of the United States to involve people from all walks of life in the fight against cancer.

Sigma Chi alumni can get involved by going to www.DerbyChallenge.org to support your local chapter. For more information regarding Sigma Chi and its relationship to Huntsman Cancer Foundation please contact sigmachi@huntsmanfoundation.org
